Irish designer Annie Atkins lived up (and then some) to the monumental dream assignment of handling the graphic design elements for Wes Anderson’s latest feature film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, including this theatrical poster and its custom title treatment.
Crowded Teeth is the alias of illustrator and designer Michelle Romo. Here’s a fun coloring sheet Michelle made featuring a cast of her signature characters and imagery—all in a giant (and dapper) mushroom head.
Eleni Kalorkoti did what a lot of us think about doing but don’t actually do—cranked out an ongoing personal project for an entire year. Her monthly zines seemingly coalesce thoughts, ideas and tidbits from her life and mind into an ever-changing graphic diary of sorts that you can buy and collect, each month having its own sort of feeling or theme.
I adore the professional and personal projects of Anna Kövecses, a Hungarian designer working in Cyprus, such as the illustrations for the BBC’s “500 Words” story-writing competition seen above and below. Anna’s colorful and iconic illustration style retains a flatness that I love, defying the clichéd demand of art directors everywhere: “more depth.”
Among my favorite artists working in the design world today are Webuyyourkids, the alias of Australian design partners Sonny Day and Biddy Maroney. Their iconic illustration style has adorned countless tour posters and album covers, and most recently, the walls of Austin’s Mondo Gallery—with their own show of silkscreened film posters.
